Proportional 940 foto2baja

I’m back in the office after nearly a week in the dark. I’ve been speechless, moved, and inspired watching New Yorkers come together to help each other the past few days. Do whatever you can to pitch in. Support local businesses, restaurants, artists. Eat out, tip big, and check on your neighbors.

Big fan of this one: I Still Love NY. 100% of the profit from these Sebastian Errazuriz shirts go to Hurricane Sandy relief programs.

Sumally has been described as the Pinterest of Japan. I don’t actually agree, because they’ve done a remarkably good job separating items into Wants and Haves. A secretly powerful tool to turn commerce on shortly.

After using it for a few days, it seems it’s the place where the most influential Japanese designers, cultural icons and locals are sharing objects of fascination in their life. The caliber of curation happening here is pretty high. Check it out, I’ll be watching this one.
